In Unity, our basic beliefs are in the all-pervasive, all-good presence of God, along with each one of our own God-selves as a unique expression of Spirit. The reason I am so passionate about prosperity studies is that manifestation is practical, real-world experience of these beliefs. It roots them further in my being by seeing proof of my relationship to this power. Currently, we are almost halfway through the incredible new study materials in Mary Morrissey’s Prosperity Plus II program. For those of you who are not in our summer class, you will have a chance to join us in the fall.
As our community commits to fiscal responsibility in our new ministerial leadership, I invite those who have not yet experienced the power of tithing to experiment with this dynamic spiritual tool. I invite you to a summer experiment, used by other Unity communities, called the Unexpected Income Program (UIP). From now until August 31st, I encourage you to commit to daily prayer of prosperity for yourself and our community and to tithe 10% of any and all unexpected income that comes to you during this period. Unexpected income would be income outside your regular form of income; income arriving “out of the blue.” You will find your focus will shift to the abundance of Source and responding with gratitude, and blessing through tithing unexpected income, you will seed the growth of increased abundance.
Using a conscious and deliberate connection to God through affirmative prayer and tithing, we become more aware of the Presence within ourselves. We see how our mind is part of the Universal Mind. Making a commitment, being open and receptive, and paying attention is all that is required. Please mark any tithes as a result of this summer experiment “UIP” so we can report back to the congregation the results of our exploration.
Please align with many others in our congregation in affirming this prayer each morning from now until August 31st, joining together in the power of collective prayer.
Our Prayer for Prosperity
The rich abundance of God is our infinite resource.
Our lives and our church are wondrously blessed.
Each day the bounty of Source flows into our lives and community.
We are increasingly open and receptive to these blessings, big and small.
As we give freely and fearlessly, our gifts seed our bounty and it is returned many times over.
Many blessings here and now manifest in expected and unexpected ways.
We are so deeply grateful.
And so it is. Amen.
In appreciation of this blessed community,
Kathy Hoare, President, Unity Board of Trustees
